5508 Project Manager IV 

Definition : 

Under administrative direction, the Project Manager plans, organizes, directs and controls 
all or part of a highly complex engineering and/or architectural project from concept 
through design and construction to closeout of the project contract. The position is 
responsible for: preparing and monitoring the project budget, including occasionally 
obtaining funding; overseeing the completion of conceptual design; overseeing planning 
activities; coordinating work of a multi-disciplinary technical staff across organizational 
boundaries; working extensively with the public, private contractors, special interest 
groups, governmental funding and regulatory agencies, and City and County 
departments; coordinating EIR processes and/or obtaining permits; controlling project 
cost and schedule; reviewing change orders; serving as primary contact for all parties 
involved in the project; and other duties as required. The Project Manager may be 
responsible for a number of projects, but a significant portion of the position's time must 
be spent in management of projects that meet the criteria below. 

A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. The 
Project Manager class is used for projects which meet the following general criteria: 
They are at a substantial dollar level; they continue over a multi-year period; they require 
significant involvement in negotiation and consensus-building among a variety of 
interested individuals and groups; they may involve unusual or unique construction or 
fabrication methods; and they are generally highly visible and of great interest to elected 
officials. 

Distinguishing Features : 

There are four levels in the Project Manager series. Levels are distinguished from one 
another by size / value, technical complexity, sensitivity and degree of involvement by 
the public and governmental agencies. Project Managers are distinguished from 
engineers and architects in that engineers and architects are typically responsible for the 
technical aspects of a project, or for construction management, but not usually involved 
in the broader range of coordination, oversight, negotiation, presentation, public 
information, financial analysis, conflict resolution and management functions of the
